Microsoft is set to release a new 'second edition' of Windows Mobile 6.5 with a number of improvements to the overall user interface on the mobile OS.

In addition to an improved on-screen keyboard there will also be a number of improvements that will make the operating system work better and play nicer with capacitive touchscreens on certain smartphones.

We need a bigger bar

Clickable buttons from the top bar have been removed and replaced with a larger bar at the bottom of the screen, which should cause less fiddling around for those larger-fingered gentlemen (and ladies).

No word yet as to when the new updates will arrive for consumers, as this is still an early build of Microsoft's new mobile OS.
